Comparable worth of jobs is very critical while taking compensation related decisions in any organization. Ascertaining the comparable worth of different jobs having varied levels of responsibility, decision-making, etc. is very challenging for any organization. However, it cannot be ignored if equity and justice has to be maintained to ensure employee trust and engagement. Organizations evaluate the comparable worth of jobs by utilizing tools that are based on methods such as job ranking, job classification, factor comparison and job points. The job point method of evaluation of comparable worth is considered to be one of the most trusted methods as it is devoid of subjectivity.

Abstract


Comparable worth of jobs is very critical while taking compensation related decisions in any organization. Ascertaining the comparable worth of different jobs having varied levels of responsibility, decision-making, etc. is very challenging for any organization. However, it cannot be ignored if equity and justice has to be maintained to ensure employee trust and engagement. Organizations evaluate the comparable worth of jobs by utilizing tools that are based on methods such as job ranking, job classification, factor comparison and job points. The job point method of evaluation of comparable worth is considered to be one of the most trusted methods as it is devoid of subjectivity.
